A new hire onboarding checklist will help managers and HR ensure they are covering all the essential steps to get ready for onboarding a new employee and lead them through the process of becoming member of a successful team.
The first few days after an employee starts will set the tone for their entire time with your company and help you predict if your investment in them will pay off.
Make it official.
This is essential to ensure the security and safety of clients and colleagues.
Contact them and clarify the first week’s schedule, run a timesheet, and supply basic info, such as parking rules and the office dress code.
Email a copy of the job description, answer questions, offer an overview of how the employee is expected to be in the department. Include these details in your new employee welcome letter.
Do this before their first day to save time and let you focus on more important things.
Help integrate them into your culture. Set up necessary meetings with key staff members, a workplace tour, and social lunches.
Clean their new space, print business cards, request for access badges, and IT equipment.
Schedule training and onboarding seminars.
Sometimes, business owners don’t think they need something like this because they do not hire often, but having an employee onboarding checklist is important. Start with our list, improve on it, and hand it off to someone else as your company grows.
